MUSEUM OF MODERN ART TO HOST "PHOTOJOURNALISM TODAY"

On December 15 at 6:30 PM, Kathy Ryan will moderate a discussion of the state of the art of photojournalism featuring Lynsey Addario and Damon Winters.

Beginning in the 1930s, major picture magazines like LOOK and Life popularized photojournalism. Although they are no longer in publication, the art form that these signature magazines helped to establish is still thriving in new and exciting ways. Join leading photojournalists of today, including MacArthur "genius" award winner Lynsey Addario and Pulitzer-Prize winner Damon Winters, for a discussion of the state of the art of photojournalism. Moderated by Kathy Ryan, photo editor of the New York Times Magazine. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Only in New York: Photographs from LOOK Magazine.

Tickets available here.
